A Manly Salad: not an oxymoron


This beef and potato salad is not only approved by Travis, but me as well. Sure it’s not a crispy chicken salad from Red Robin, but it is tasty and hits all the right taste buds.

Rating: (Out of 5 stars):

Travis: 4 stars

Me: 3.5 stars.

I got the recipe from HERE , Rachael Ray. And do not believe the 30 min time frame. It took about 45 min to gather everything and then prepare it. Pretty though huh 🙂


The SWEET thing about this dish is that you can serve it warm (beef, mushrooms and potatoes warmed) luke warm or even cold! Can I get a high five for that?!!

What I mean is you can make this in the morning and take it out whenever you want for dinnertime. And you look like a good cook.

* Hint: make sure to spice up your meat. It’s kinda highlighted here and the worst is flavorless meat. Trust me.

Here is the veggies, most of them: Mushrooms (the most important veggie in here 😉 ), 1/2 head of romaine lettuce, 4 cloves of garlic, 1/2 red onion and 3 potatoes. (taters already cooked)

The dressing: Olive oil, spicy mustard, 1 lemon/zested and lots of garlic salt and pepper. (here’s the before and after mixing)

You could change it up and substitute honey mustard dressing for a kick.. Would be pretty good here!

Over all: Try it! It is such a flexible recipe! you can add pretty much your favorite things to it and have it taste awesome! Let me know if you try this! 🙂
